The internet has led to countless bizarre and often dangerous challenges gaining popularity around the world.
In 2015, the “Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge” inspired teens to attempt to get the now 20-year-old’s surgically enhanced pout. How? Well, it was simple. All they had to do was get a shot glass, place it over their lips, and suck for a prolonged period of time.
The challenge may have been created to help teens get the lips of their dreams (albeit temporarily), but the results were absolutely horrifying. Doctors decided to warn teens against partaking in the challenge, which could permanently damage their lips.
Thankfully, however, not all online challenges have been as dangerous as the Kylie Jenner lip challenge.
The biggest trend of 2014 was the “Ice Bucket Challenge” which encouraged people to nominate each other to throw – you guessed it – a bucket of icy water over themselves for charity.
But now there’s a new challenge on the block, which is pictured below…
Now, it’s emerged that there’s a new trend making waves on the internet called the “Straight Arm Challenge”. It involves participants opening a bottle of some sort (which is likely to contain alcohol… or hot sauce) and attempting to drink from it without bending their arm.
Needless to say, it’s very easy to fail at, and the results are a lot messier than the ice bucket challenge – unless, of course, you use a bottle of water.
Check out the straight arm challenge for yourself and decide if it’s something you want to fail at this holiday season:
